6. No fix is needed
The political system is set up in such a way as to ensure that only those with access to vast scads of money (either their own or others) can get elected. That acts to ensure that the mainstream candidates from both parties are various flavours of corporatist. Washington has become a culture of wealth-worship, the exceptions (i.e. Kucinich) end up getting marginalised and dismissed as "kooky" (which Dennis is but not in a bad way).
